October 2010 – July 2011
Kansas City, Missouri
As a response to the continued dwindling of government support for the arts, BREAD! KC was founded in October 2010 as a micro-financing organization dedicated to providing sustainable, democratic means of supporting the Kansas City creative community. BREAD! KC is a member of the Sunday Soup Network, an international system of over 70 similar organizations, originally founded by the Chicago-based artist collective, InCUBATE.
The micro-grants are raised by hosting monthly, migrating dining events during which preselected artists or organizations pitch a proposal to dinner guests. The guests then vote to determine who is awarded the grant for that event. Since 2010, BREAD! KC has raised over $15,500 in micro-grants for the KC community.
